What to Expect with Synthetic Wigs

At Umona Hair, we are certain that our synthetic wig collection will have you looking and feeling amazing.  So, if you’re wondering whether or not synthetic wigs are for you and want to know what to expect, read on.

Synthetic wigs are becoming more common, yet many myths still float around. Rather than concentrate on these myths, we decided to focus on some of the issues to expect with synthetic wigs.

A significant concern is around shine; sometimes this can be a giveaway that your wig isn’t your natural hair or human hair. Over time and as you wear your wig, the shine will naturally decrease. However, if you want to speed up this process, we recommend using dry shampoo – it’s an easy fix and you have control on the amount of shine you want to remove.  Shine is not at all bad so try not to dull your wig by being heavy-handed with the dry shampoo. Lustrous shiny hair is a must have when it comes to your finished look, so be sure to keep some shine.

Another concern is with shedding, and let’s be real, this is to be expected. Even with our own hair, we shed daily, so it’s not shocking that your synthetic wig will also shed. That being said, our wigs do not overly shed. It is important that care is taken when combing - this should be done from tip to root to get rid of any tangles. Excessive heat will also cause shedding, so we suggest up to 180°c or less where possible. Gentle care of your wig = less shedding.  

This leads us to the issue of tangling. Again, gentle care will result in fewer tangles. It’s really as simple as ABC.

A - Always comb your wig with the appropriate comb, avoid brushes if possible, otherwise use a widely-spaced brush.

B - Be sure to use the right product to wash your wig, there are shampoos and conditioners specially formulated for synthetic fibre wigs.

C - Careful to not tamper with your wig whilst it’s wet.

Now let’s talk about price, it’s no secret that synthetic wigs have the advantage of being affordable, they are cheaper than real human hair wigs and can look just as great. Check out our amazing collection.

What about maintenance?

Synthetic wigs are made of artificial fibres and whilst our fibres can hold a degree of heat, our wigs come pre-styled and don’t need a lot of maintenance. What’s more, after washing your wig, you won’t need to re-style it as you would with human hair. Synthetic wigs retain their style no matter the weather and will save you time getting ready.  

Now that we have given you the low down on what to expect, what are you waiting for? Take advantage of the variety of styles and colours we have available here.
